Call to Worship
Psalm 29:1–2, 11

Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.
May the LORD give strength to his people!
May the LORD bless his people with peace!

 

Prayer for God’s Presence

 

Hymn – Lead On, O King Eternal

Lead on, O King eternal,
The day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home:
Through days of preparation
Thy grace has made us strong,
And now, O King eternal,
We lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King eternal,
Till sin’s fierce war shall cease,
And Holiness shall whisper
The sweet amen of peace;
For not with swords loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums,
But deeds of love and mercy,
The heav’nly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King eternal,
We follow, not with fears;
For gladness breaks like morning
Where’er thy face appears;
Thy cross is lifted o’er us;
We journey in its light:
The crown awaits the conquest;
Lead on, O God of might.

 

Affirmation of Faith
The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
     of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
    the only-begotten Son of God,
    begotten of his Father before all worlds,
    God of God, Light of Light,
    very God of very God, begotten, not made,
    being of one substance with the Father;
    by whom all things were made;
    who for us and for our salvation
    came down from heaven,
    and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit
    of the virgin Mary,
    and was made man;
    and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
    he suffered and was buried;
    and the third day he rose again
    according to the Scriptures,
    and ascended into heaven,
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
    and he shall come again, with glory,
    to judge both the living and the dead;
    whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the Lord and giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
    who with the Father and the Son together
    is worshiped and glorified;
    who spoke by the prophets;
    and we believe in one holy catholic
    and apostolic church;
    we acknowledge one baptism
    for the remission of sins;
    and we look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Scripture Reading
1 Peter 3:8–12

Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For

“Whoever desires to love life
and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from speaking deceit;
let him turn away from evil and do good;
let him seek peace and pursue it.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and his ears are open to their prayer.
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

 

Silent Confession of Sin

 

Corporate Confession of Sin

O most just and gracious God.
We confess that we have sinned
     and fallen short of your holiness.
We have repaid evil for evil
     and have lacked sympathy and a humble mind.
Empower us, by Your Spirit,
     to keep our tongues from speaking deceit,
     to turn from evil and do good,
     to seek and pursue peace.
Lead us under the shadow of your cross,
     that we may again find in you
     our life and joy and peace. Amen.

 

Scripture of Grace
Romans 5:1

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Pastoral Prayer

 

Hymn – My Hope is Built on Nothing Less

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face,
I rest on his unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

His oath, his covenant, his blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When he shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in him be found;
Dressed in his righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

 

Preaching of God’s Word
“Are you a peacemaker or a peacebreaker?”
Matthew 5:9

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

 

Hymn
All I Have is Christ

I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way;
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave.
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will,
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still.

But as I ran my hell-bound race.
Indifferent to the cost,
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross.
And I beheld God’s love displayed,
You suffered in my place;
You bore the wrath reserved for me,
Now all I know is grace.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me.
O Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose,
And let my song forever be:
My only boast is You.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ.
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life.

 

Benediction
